Abstract or Summary
  • Objective: To explore the controversial issue of the safety and use of mercury in amalgam dental fillings. Methods: Using a variety of scientifically oriented studies, overall trends and conclusions were analyzed. Relevant articles include Children’s exposure to Amalgam, fetal exposure, environmental mercury, occupational exposure, and mercury and Multiple Sclerosis. Additional literatures available to the public were also analyzed to provide background on the general public’s access to information regarding amalgam. Results: Many studies used analyzed mercury content of the urine, a key factor when deciding the toxicity of mercury in amalgam fillings. Most studies found little or no correlation between amalgam fillings and toxicity to the human body. Conclusion: The bulk of the evidence to date supports the use of mercury amalgam as probably safe.
